Pres­i­dent Ge­orge HW Bush lauded for pub­lic ser­vice


The Guardian Weekly - - Global Report -

Global tributes were paid to Ge­orge HW Bush, the 41st US pres­i­dent who died last Fri­day aged 94. Bush, who was pres­i­dent from 1989-93, was hailed for his long pub­lic ser­vice, global lead­er­ship at the end of the cold war, and a do­mes­tic com­mit­ment to bi­par­ti­san­ship.

A sec­ond world war vet­eran, he was also cel­e­brated as the last mem­ber of the “great­est gen­er­a­tion” to oc­cupy the Oval Of­fice, and re­mem­bered also for his 73-year mar­riage to Bar­bara, the long­est be­tween a pres­i­dent and first lady.
